Best PC Gaming Deals Of The Week

The time for all-out price massacre is officially over now that Black Friday and the dubiously titled Cyber Monday are over and done. That doesn’t mean that the deals have stopped coming, it just means that retailers are catching their collective breath right now as they prepare for the en-masse Christmas discount rush that will inevitably come in the forthcoming weeks. That’s right, it’s a matter of weeks until Christmas, by the way. Let that sink in for a second, while you dig into today’s cheap advent calendar chocolate.

Regardless, you’re here and I’m here so we may as well take a look at what’s been on offer in the days that came after the dizzying discount period that was last week. As always, we’ve got deals that’ll work in the UK, deals that’ll work in the US and some deals that will work in both the UK and US, as well as presumably many other places. But first, we need to talk about free stuff.

Giveaway time!

As luck would have it, we’ve gone and teamed up with the folks over at GamesPlanet to offer you the chance to win some free games. This time we have three copies of Watch Dogs 2 on PC up for grabs – specifically, two copies of the Deluxe Edition and one extra-special copy of the Gold Edition – so if that sounds like the sort of thing you’d like to be in with a chance to win, click this handy link below and get involved. Entries close at 23:59:59 (GMT) on Sunday 4th December.

UK Deals

If you’ve been reading anything I’ve written in the past few months you may already be aware that I’m a huge sucker for LucasArts adventure games. With that in mind, it’s no surprise that this deal made it into this article. Right now, Bundle Stars will sell you a set of four classic LucasArts point-and-click adventure games for £1.39. Namely, you’ll get Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, The Dig and Loom. Fine leather jackets not included.

Did you see that ludicrous display last night? If not, simulate it for yourself since Amazon UK is currently offering Football Manager 2017 Limited Edition for £26.99.

US Deals

Fallout 4 wasn’t for everyone. Sure, it was shiny, new and filled with Bostonian accents but sometimes you just pine for a simpler time. Enter Amazon US’ current offer of Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas for $3.30 each. If you don’t already own both of these, there’s never been a better time to add them to your ever-increasing Steam library of games you’ll ‘get around to someday’.

Do you need 8TB of data storage? No, you probably don’t but who wouldn’t want a little more room to store all their downloaded junk. Amazon US is cutting $70 off the price of this Seagate 8TB Desktop External Hard Drive, bringing the price down to $169.99 for more space than you will probably ever need.

Alright, we’re done for another week. Keep in mind that deals, prices and availability can change at the drop of a hat, so apologies if you miss out on something you wanted.

    This is your periodic reminder that you should just go buy The Witcher 3, it’s bloody great.
    Hell, I’ll buy it for you if you’re that skint.

    • Ushao says:

      Not skint, but certainly more broke than I’d like. I need to finish the previous two as well.

      • SaunteringLion says:

        I love them all (with the love escalating for each entry) but if you’re also skint on time, the Witcher 3 can be played without either previous entry.

        The first game has a fairly high barrier of entry for patience, it’ll take a good 10-20 hours to really click. It’s still great, but the fighting is middling to bad, and the Swamp is just tedious.

        • malkav11 says:

          “the fighting is middling to bad” and yet the best in the whole series. It’s all downhill from Witcher 1 on that front.

  2. Gramarye says:

    Should probably mention in the article the giveaway is for codes region-locked to the UK, Europe, Oceania, Middle-East, Africa, Japan and South Korea.

    It doesn’t say the US can’t sign up, but I’d feel like a bit of a dick.

    • Ushao says:

      Yeah I was excited about the giveaway then saw the regions. I’d like to enter but I don’t want to be a jerk either.

    • SaunteringLion says:

      And once again Canada is America’s little brother.

      We’ve got the Queen on our money, it should count for something!

  3. spacedyemeerkat says:

    Point of Pedantry: it’s Car Mechanic Simulator 2015 rather than 2016.

  4. Benkyo says:

    The Witness for $20 on Steam is the cheapest I’ve ever seen it.

    • darrrrkvengeance says:

      that was the price point i was holding out for, so i just picked it up.

  5. anevilyak says:

    “Fine leather jackets not included.”

    Thank you, I needed that laugh. (Ask me about Loom!)

  6. Cretmeister says:

    Feel I ought to create an account and add a wee post here: that Watch ‘Underscore’ Dogs 2 giveaway will only work if you allow something called the “Gleam Competition App” to use your Twitter account. It’ll read your Tweets(Fair enough), see who you follow(Yeah, cool), follow new people(What?), update your profile(Ooh, creepy) and post Tweets for you(Hahahaha no).

    Just thought that should be mentioned, maybe.

  7. YogSo says:

    Speaking of GOG’s Monstrous Winter Sale, Neverwinter Nights Diamond Edition is free for the next 20+ hours. Click on the banner at the top of the main page to add it to your GOG account. The Diamond Edition includes the two expansions (‘Shadows of Undrentide’ and ‘Hordes of the Underdark’) and the Premium module ‘Kingmaker’.

    • Kaeoschassis says:

      Nearly choked on my drink when I saw that one last night. Of all the games I’ve ever grabbed for free (which has been adding up over the years now I think of it), that one easily represents the greatest potential playtime for £0.00, and that’s BEFORE you consider user-made content.

      I actually owned NWN and the two expansions, years ago, but my discs long since died and I never got around to re-buying it. Guess now I don’t have to. Listen folks, if you have a GOG account, for the love of fun games, please go and grab that right now. If you don’t have one, it’s easy to sign up and you never need to use it for anything else afterwards, right?

  8. Nauallis says:

    The current humble bundle is worth it for Big Pharma alone. Great depth to that game, the tutorial missions only scratch the surface of the available machinery and tech, and it implies some very thoughtful ethical dilemmas about the business of drugs and cures.

    Is that top image (the sun setting behind the forest) from Firewatch? It’s gorgeous.

  10. Yglorba says:

    Although it’s too late to get it now, I feel compelled to point out that the last Humble Monthly had Dragon’s Dogma as its pre-revealed pre-order bonus for less than that sale, and if you got it you also got a bunch of other excellent titles. The current one is Vermintide, so anyone interested in getting that and a bunch of other mystery games for $12 should take a look. The titles have generally been really good lately.
